"This Is the Night" as written by Sonny Burke and Peggy Lee....
this always happens
my spine pulled out
for all to see
it’s how you found me
nothing to offer you
but this mess
the air around us
refuses to let us breathe
so we sleep

take this armor off of me
I was never ready to fight
this time it’s for real
trying to hold it back
I fail
I must leave you here
no one asked you
to come with me
chasing falling stars
nothing to offer you
but myself
nothing here

let’s fall down
into madness
hold back
your will

and you know
that this was all for love
but you take
what you can’t give back
so you take
the mistake

and you know that
this was all for love
but you take
what you can’t give back
so you take the mistake

and you know…
